St Johnstone News and Form

It was a 1-0 loss against Montrose that St Johnstone suffered in their opening game of the League Cup. That was a poor start from them and it immediately sets them on the back foot in the group. Only the top team in the group gets an automatic spot for the second round of the competition. Considering that they are already six points adrift of leaders Ross, the Saints can’t afford to lose this one. It may be that they are already in the position of playing for one of the best second-placed teams. Can Tommy Wright’s men come up with the result that they need? If not, the path ahead gets a lot tougher. But at least they have the home solid advantage at McDiarmid Park.

Ross County News and Form

Ross will be back in the top flight next season after winning the Championship. So they have a big season ahead and have come out firing in this season’s League Cup. They beat Montrose 4-1 in their opening (remember Montrose beat St Johnstone) and then scored a 4-0 win over Brechin. If you fancy them to get on the scoresheet at McDiarmid Park then there has been a couple of stand out performers for them in front of goal. Ross Stewart has scored two goals in both games so far, while Billy McKay has one in each. So they are shaping up well and given their strong start, they will still be a commanding position even if they were to get out of this one with a draw.

St Johnstone v Ross County Predictions

St Johnstone to win: The Saints really have to pull out the stops, but this is not going to be easy against the in-form Ross side. This could be a good fixture, but home soil advantage and the fact that the Saints have a good head to head form against Ross may make the difference. Home win.
